Lyme disease is referred to as the Great Imitator because its symptoms overlap with those of many other health conditions. For this reason, many patients may not realize for some time that they need to seek medical treatment. To help you know if you should be tested for Lyme disease, we offer a list of symptoms of Lyme disease that are often misinterpreted as something else:
– Flu-like symptoms (nausea, aches, fever, joint pain, fatigue)
– Stiff neck
– Sensitivity to light or sound
– Sleep disturbance
– Imbalanced gait
– Blurred vision
– Partial paralysis on one side of the face
Lyme disease is caused by bacteria transferred by a tick bite. If you have passed through tall grass or a forested area, be sure to check yourself for ticks. Lyme disease can begin to spread after a tick has been attached to you for 36 to 48 hours.
